have my two science leaders, [inaudible] and janet gray, so science questions galor, they can handle them all, policy questions, we'll have to deflect some of those to nancy for another time, so what i'm going to present today is what we call our healthy home and healthy world tours, i'll talk a little bit about who the breast cancer fund is and then we're going to walk through kind of the rooms in your home talking about tips for avoiding exposures that are linked to breast cancer and i will talk a little bit about the different chemicals, where they're found, things you can do to avoid them and also some policies, and then we'll kind of go beyond the home to talk about the kinds of exposures that might be not within our control in the house but elsewhere. and it looks like i have videos so that is good. so, the breast cancer fund is a national organization that works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating the environmental exposures linked o the disease, mostly we talk about chemicals and radiation that are linked to breast cancer, we are a little different from your breast cancer

health and safety information on chemicals, would use the best science to assess safety, so not old science but new science, would seek to protect vulnerable populations like we talked about way back when, right, prenatally and in pregnancy, those ones that are maybe more vulnerable to chemical exposures and also to reduce exposures in communities with unfair burden of exposures, we know that very often, poor communities, communities of color, communities with less resources are exposed to higher levels of chemicals so we have to reduce that unfair burden because they already have enough unfair burden, so that calls for some comprehensive changes and we want to see those happen. the senate is not likely to reconvene and vote on this bill because we are winding down of course with this legislative session and this particular administration in terms of senates turning over, they're all -- most of them are up for re-election, house is turning over -- about half of them are up for re-election and of course presidential election as well, and so it is very likely of course that this will

. this is also a policy question. at that concerns me with the regime questions of a political science professor, liberal democracy and clinical science are two types. one is regime to close the type of government you have in the form goes to your regime in the form of government, both culture and the government you should be our foreign policy, keeping gadhafi empower, is that four or in opposition to american interests? i don't get them as issues' notebook. those are policy issues. i'm mainly concerned with regime issues. but you take your point, i am making a distinction between the democratic sovereignty and so i guess they don't have an objection to the overthrow of the burmese government. it would have an objection is a policy, i don't think to be a good policy to change every country in the world i am not advocating not in any sense. we can argue about different policies. i'm saying is a form of government, the liberal democratic nationstate is superior to other forms of government. one would be global governance. others isn't autocratic regime. i talk about russia and china has autocrati

's where the studies are. that's where the science is in reducing silent inflammation, blood pressure, cholesterol. i mean, look at my husband. my husband was--cholesterol levels, as you could see, 400s 500s over a period of 10 to 15 years-- but until he understood the potency of omega-3 that he needed to take to reduce that cholesterol--and that is conservatively 3,000 milligrams of omega-3 a day. now, many preventive cardiologists are going to tell you you need 5,000 if you're already, you know, in a chronic--having a chronic problem. so the key to all of this is when you purchase something, you're an educated consumer. that's important. >> we hope that you're gonna become a member of the station right now by calling the number on your screen. it's the best thing you can do for you and your family, and, of course, for this television station. >> if you watch public television regularly, you already know that we often air shows about improving your health and well-being. today we are living longer, and we've come to understand that the quality of our life depends upon our health. it'

and science those who have more experience and highly credentialed instructors come to do better with the mandatory courses than those who have less experience in the introductory courses. one logical interpretation is a less experienced instructors more likely to teach to the test that has impressive exam scores and happy students with the instructor evaluation. but deal crusty professors that we nearly fired one paragraph ago focus less on the exam and more on the concepts that matter most in the following courses and in life after the air force academy. we need to evaluate teachers and professors to make sure we do our right. long-term policy challenge bruited in statistics is develop a system that rewards the real value added. this is a work in progress. we'll stop there will be happy -- happy to answer any questions. thank you.

on the filibuster? >> there is a division between political scientists and historians about this. political science will look at the system and say, what is wrong with this. the historian will look at it and say, how did it get way. we tend to be less active in suggesting changes to the system. floyd riddick said, the rules of the senate are perfect. what he meant by that was, the senators have exclusive control over writing their own rules. these are the rules that have written, and this is what i carry out. if the want to change them, they will change them to fit their circumstances. they have been filibustering since 1789. the senate and house have developed in remarkably different ways over time. the constitution said, each house can write their own rules. you come to the senate. the rules of the senate have always given much more muscle to the minority. sometimes it is the minority party. sometimes it is a minority faction inside a minority part to says, "i object," and everything stops. every senate majority leader is under a lot of burden to try to get a very uncooperative organization to wo
